My hometown of Walla Walla is on this list and I remain unsurprised. I went to college at Washington State University and was always warned against stopping in a nearby town, Colfax, at any time of day. This article has really inspired me to look at some of the history of Eastern Washington in relation to sundown towns. Its something we rarely talk about in E. Washington and you have really inspired me to research/write about my home turf. Thank you for writing this. I'll also be checking out James Loewen's book.
